We’ve all has those days…you know the ones where we just want it to be over so we can all go home, go to bed and start over the next day. A Team member is out sick and now you’re short staffed. The schedule fell apart, so there goes production and profit sharing for the day. The bridge prep had to be impressioned twice and the crown didn’t seat. Then it happens…that favorite family comes in and makes your day.
The parents think you’re the best Dental Team on the planet and they always remind you of that fact. Their children are wonderful; their youngest six year old boy is an absolute joy. He’s articulate and entertaining and as cute as the day is long. You ask him if he has a girlfriend and he replies “no”. Then of course you just have to ask him if you can be his girlfriend, but he thinks you’re too old!!
Their fifteen-year-old daughter is bright, beautiful and focused on the good things life has to offer. She’s on the honor roll, participates in three sports and knows that she wants to go to college and plans to study pediatric nursing… WOW! This special family just made your day; it makes the difficult times a little bit easier.
“Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile.”
